Now available on-demand: edie’s World Water Week webinar

Hosted during World Water Week (20 to 24 August), this edie webinar offered up an afternoon of live, interactive presentations and discussions – all dedicated to accelerating water stewardship and reducing water-related business risk.

The water crisis has been ranked as the third most important risk to global growth in the next 10 years, according to the World Economic Forum. With water scarcity rapidly rising up the public and political agenda, businesses will need to place it at the heart of their sustainability strategies if they are to reduce environmental impact and increase resilience.  

This webinar convened sustainability leaders and water management experts to share tools, insights and practices that accelerate innovation and drive global water security. Topics covered will include water efficiency, eliminating pollution and conserving and restoring natural habitats.
